Be a part of any of these great Voter Empowerment services:
Voter Registration - volunteer to staff an event where you help voters register or re-register to be eligible to vote in the upcoming election. Voter Registration volunteers are also part of our program to run mock elections in high schools.
Candidate Forums - These events require more advanced roles such as moderator and question screeners, but also need pages (collecting questions from the audience) or timekeepers.
Speakers' Bureau - During election season our speakers present non-partisan informative talks on state and local ballot propositions. If you're new to Speakers' Bureau we'll pair you up with a veteran Speaker to teach you the ropes. Speakers meet up in advance to research the ballot measures. Year-round the Speakers' Bureau also presents other informative talks to community groups.
Voters Edge - The site http://votersedge.org/ca provides free ballot information, including candidate statements and non-partisan information about ballot initiatives. Voters Edge volunteers work with candidates to get their information uploaded and add non-partisan information about local measures.
Sips & Civility - This is a year-round event series aimed at younger and less-engaged voters. Events feature a speaker and discussion hour. Volunteers could be manning our check-in table or moderating our discussion tables.
